HOUSTON (Aug. 22, 2017) — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, today announced the addition of Ron Cass, PE, PMP, as the senior program/project manager to its Water group in the Gulf Southwest region.

Throughout his career, he has delivered complex water treatment, seawater desalination, aquifer storage and recovery (ASR), brackish reverse osmosis (RO) and alternative delivery projects across the world.

“Texas is one of the nation’s fastest growing populations, which brings challenges in water sustainability,” said Tyler Jones, AECOM Gulf Southwest region business line lead. “With Ron’s extensive experience in water design and construction, we are confident he will help AECOM proactively combine science and technology with innovative management approaches so people across the state have access to safe, clean water for years to come.”

Most recently he managed a team of more than 60 design engineers to develop design documents for the staged construction of a waste treatment facility in Oregon. He has also managed the expansion of water facilities in Cape Coral and Tampa Bay, Florida and provided oversight for the largest RO desalination plant in Australia.
